Washington To Allow Children to Be Legally Taken From Parents If They Don’t Consent to Gender Transition
However, the Democrat-led state received much backlash for passing the radical bill, calling it an attack on families and parents by the Left.
State Senate Republican Leader John Braun said the troubling legislation "clears the way" for kids to "game the system" by taking away parent's God-given rights.
"The only thing SB 5599 would do is cause harm by driving a wedge between vulnerable kids and their parents, at a time when a teen lacks the perception and judgment to make critical life-altering decisions," Braun said. "A parent may not even know why the child ran away and could involve law enforcement or other groups in a desperate search… all the while going through an unnecessary emotional nightmare, imagining the worst about what might have happened."
Braun also argued that children's brains are not fully developed until they are at least 22 years of age, which means Democrats are pushing minors to believe they can make a life-altering decision that they may regret one day.
"Right now, [Democrats] are sponsoring a juvenile offender sentencing bill based on 'the expansive body of scientific research on brain development, which shows that adolescents' perception, judgment, and decision-making skills differ significantly from that of adults,'" Braun continued.
